Credit and Insolvency Topics

Our Topic Pages pull together the insolvency statutes and rules for a variety of financial institutions, starting of course with the Bankruptcy Code, but also including materials relating to broker-dealers, FCMs and banks, including the key insolvency rules of SIPC and the important case law regarding SIPA, insolvency under the CEA, and the "protected contract" provisions of the Bankruptcy Code. We provide specialized articles on the insolvency rules governing broker-dealers and FCMs that will be useful to both sell- and buy-side market participants seeking to understand what happens in a financial institution insolvency.
